T he Varsity Magazine Supplement
Published by The 5tudents Administrative Council
Here with a feathered Quill at Learning's gate
I hold the fort in Paradisal state;
At nine a.m. I don my Halo smartly
And until five I answer questions tartly.
'Tis thus I spend the dreary winter days,
Interpreting the Calendanal Maze;
My eyes beam forth a frigid steely glitter
That silences all undergraduate twitter.
But ever as the seasons bring the spring
I feel at one with every sentient thing,
And supervise a sort of Incubation
The net result of which is Graduation.
Thus once a year I really vie with God
And bring forth Graduates like peas in pod ;
By sheer creative act I make Mentality
Which goes in time to form a nationality.
But, truth to tell, the strain of it is great,
To God I'd gladly leave it to create;
For I by temperament do find it meeter
To emulate on earth the Holy Peter.
Jani un , 1918.
Next on the stage Histoncus appears
And gracefully his learning's load he bears.
Broad black-beribboned tortoiseshell his nose
Bestrides, while on his neat bespatted toes
He prances as the intermittent flow
Of wit and wisdom fills the brains below.
Now against Patronage he lifts his arm
With threatening gesture, now upon his farm.
While Marmaduke and Algernon display
Their sad propensities, he fills his day
And serves his country by conserving food.
But most his soul with liberal arts endued
Delights to foster music's softer charms
With tuneful din to wake the street's alarms —
A cry that shivers to the tingling skies —
While Robert's wail antiphonal replies!

The touches of our native speech
Perplex his unacquainted tongue.
Through all his lectures is a sound
Of Irony. He is not young
And foolish. Arbiter is he
Of Elegancies to a crude
And new Philistia, in arts
Untrained, in humane letters rude.
Beneath the uncouth shock of hair
He sees the artist's budding dreams,
In clothes of rustic cut discerns
The Poet pushing through the seams.
The poetaster who indites
Sonnets galore and wants to sell 'em,
Will find no publisher unless
His stuff is countersigned by Pelham.
(With apologies to Francis Thompson).
(Erttba Biro Itrtfrsque &rnrrtus
With missionary zeal of yore
He left the land of Albion to
Proclaim the need of Grecian lore
To budding heathens in Toronto.
And still each morn, as years ago.
His long-famihar figure passes
Upright, majestic, with a slow
And thoughtful stride to meet his classes.
And still the Oxford tongue has he,
With courage and success spectacular,
Preserved unsoiled, and steadfastly
Eschewed Ontario vernacular.
And every lad and every lass
(Despite the fact 'tis Greek he teaches)
His wisdom can recall in class,
His wit in after-dinner speeches.
His soul was like a star and dwelt apart.
Far from the fretted sines,
Where Eireann whispers to the listening heart
In mystic shrines.
His body in the class-room's cloudy spaces
Taught higher mathematics.
Half-conscious of the vague perplexed faces,
His dulcet voice above the Open Forum,
'Mid Bolshevist outpourings
Taught Russian Jews and Labour men decorum,
And stilled their roarings.
But spirit-bound with Yeats in lnnisfree
His bean-rows seven
Prove to him belter than geometry
That Ireland's heaven.
When the student's last essay is written,
And no flaws remain to amend,
When English groups never are smitten
With silence, and always attend;
When Canadians never are wanting
In courage to say what they please ;
When wealth has renounced the bold flaunting
Of its useless existence of ease;
Then this sage, somewhat after the fashion
Of the Imperial lord of his name,
May find cause for lamenting and passion
In the lack of a new world to tame.

His habits are by no means like the bear's;
He hibernates up north the livelong summer,
And southward at September's close repairs,
To fill the post of literary drummer.
His labours practical with drum and quill
Leave little space for hobbies sentimental;
Yet in spare time, they say, he dabbles still
In history and lingoes oriental.
With feet on desk, with pipe in mouth, he dreams
Aloud to rows of votaries ecstatic;
And from his lips pour forth commingled streams
Of fragrant smoke and language Asiatic.
Claudel and Francis Thompson, golf and tea,
Gossip, tobacco, book reviews, divinity —
A motley throng of interests has he;
His single brain can compass all infinity.

$5,000 from PELMANISM
Incomes Trebled and Quadrupled
GREAT PUBLIC INTEREST IN NEW PELMAN COURSE
LETTERS reach the Pelman Institute every day from men
and women who have trebled and quadrupled their
incomes by means of this most remarkable system.
In one case the writer says that he is now earning six times
his previous income as the result of the increased efficiency
this training has given him.
Other letters say how their writers have caught the eye of
their superiors and have been promoted over the heads of
many of their co-workers simply because of the qualities
they have developed by means of Pelmanism.
One business man in a letter reprinted below states that he
has made $5,000 in a single year as a result of enrolling for
the Pelman Course.
Some people, knowing the great educational value of
Pelmanism and the way it enables men and women to broaden
their intellectual outlook, to increase their knowledge of
literature, art, and science, to become good conversationists,
and to cultivate the social arts, have thought that this is
all that Pelmanism does.
This is not the ease. Pelmanism does all this. It develops
the "higher values" of life. But it does more. It develops
your business capacity as well. This is the most important at
the present time. Industry to-day needs keen, efficient minds.
It needs them more now than it ever did. And Pelmanism
makes you keen and efficient. It enables -you to take full
advantage of the opportunities for advancement now afforded
by the Business World. So if you wish to advance your fin-
ancial position, as well as your social position, you should
certainly apply for particulars of the Pelman Course.
They will be sent you gratis and post free on application to
the address printed below. This is an opportunity no one can
afford to neglect. "Write or call for these free particulars

Great Opportunity for Those Who Wish to Rise
to a Higher Position.
FACTS AND FIGURES EVERYONE SHOULD READ
Many people nowadays are living half -lives. They are not
progressing as they ought to do. They are not concentrating
their energies on a single goal. They are allowing their
minds to stray in different directions. Consequently, although
the cost of living is continually rising, their incomes are not
keeping pace with rising prices. In other words, they are
falling behind. They are not in such a good position as they
were even a few months ago.
WORKING AT FULL POWEE.
Pelmanism alters all this. It enables you to put forth your
full powers. It enables you to save waste of time and energy.
It gives you the power to take on work previously beyond
your capacity, and it enables you to do this work well and
to make good.
That is why Pelmanists in every profession, business, and
occupation are forging rapidly ahead, trebling and quadrup-
ling their incomes and securing swift promotion to higher
positions of responsibility. The value of Pelmanism is very
quickly shown by the figures in your bankbook.
Bead, for example, the following letters — just a few taken
at random from the piles of similar communications which
reach the Pelman Institute every day: —
SALARY INCREASED 300%
"Please accept my best thanks. . . . I have improved
300% in salary."
From a CLERK.
$5,000 FROM AN IDEA.
"I have cleared over $5,000 from en idea which material-
ised by the Pelman methods, so you will understand better
than I can write it the gratitude I feel towards the Pelman
From PELMANIST M.10,527.
"In $ and c. I benefit to the extent of $5,000 at least this
year. That is not a boast, but true business fact, and I can
prove it. . . . When I go abroad, as I do a good deal, or
if I feel out of sorts, down in the mouth, etc., I have a good
dose of Lesson V. Lesson V. is always in my kit-bag on my
From an IMPORTER.
"Since I commenced your Course of Instruction my effi-
ciency has vastly increased. My income has gone up 300%.
... I attribute all this to the Pelman Course. ' '
From an ARCHITECT.
"When engaging a secretary some months ago I was told,
in reply to my inquiry as to whether the candidate claimed
intelligence, that she was an enthusiastic Pelman student. I
engaged her upon the spot, subject to references, and my
decision has been more than justified."
From a SOLICITOR.
INCREASE OF $1,000.
' ' I have benefited very greatly on the financial side, having
just received a rise in salary of $1,000 a year, bringing me up
to $2,750, a figure undreamt of a year or so ago. I consider
that the Pelman Course is, from the standpoint of money
alone, a most profitable investment, and from the intellectual
standpoint a veritable resurrection of the mind."
From an ELECTRICAL ENGINEER.
